Univerciudad Illustration Case Study

In this case study we will show how Luis Inciarte a designer from Venezuela created a great illustration that features such characters as The Terminator, The Joker, Tony Montana, Gollum and Dark Vader. Check it out!! Univerciudad Issue #4 - Illustration: This was a commisioned illustration from a new magazine called "UNIVERCIUDAD". The topic was "Don't Die Without Watching... Movies That Have Touched Our Generation". They gave me some famous movie quotes and wanted an illustration based on that topic, they gave me a very general outline of what they wanted and this is what was produced. Inspired by 70's Grindhouse movie posters, black and white figures over a saturated and plain colored background. The characters chosen were The Terminator, The Joker, Tony Montana, Gollum and Darth Vader. I hadn't done any illustrations in about 3 years, so im very proud of this one.

They met when they were studying graphic design at Elisava Design School and they have been working together since them. From his clients we can tell that it's been working pretty well so far, especially for the type of work with beautiful typographies with that hand drawing feel.

Both meet studying graphic design on Elisava Design School eighteen years later and after working in different studies during two years they decided to work together founding Vanila Barcelona to develop their own projects. They love old school graphics, western typographies and all kind of "folklore". Both like the food from Sevilla and the breaking waves of Laguna Beach. They missed the epoque when Saved by the Bell was on tv. Freehand will never die. Some Works

Amazing Spaceships Concepts

I've just came from the movies, after I watched District 9. It was a true thrill to see such a great "low budget" film made and it only reminds me of how great sci-films were back then, and there was a total lack of good sci-fi films like that lately, until District 9 arrived. Of course, if you've watched the trailer, you realize there's not much of space action, but the movie is great nevertheless. And as a little tribute to this movie, I've found this great concept arts by Alexey KaranaK, an illustration form Siberia. This guys really knows his deal, and he makes some sweet spaceships concepts! I've loved it. Fore more, you should visit his page at DeviantART, because it's really worth it! I hope you all like it! And go watch District 9, seriously. ;)

Cool Illustrated Facial Expressions

Friday is finally here and I gotta ask you: why the long face? If you had a tough week, we're here to cheer you up! One of coolest and best ways to evolve your drawing skills is to practice. A lot. And that's exactly what these people did. Over, and over and over again. Most of these from a meme by Nancy Lorenz, and these are so much fun that I had to download the original file to try it myself! I particularly loved the one that really reminded me of Ren & Stimpy (you'll all know which one). Anyways, you should really check the image in its original size by clicking them, for the full experience. I really hope this lights up your friday a little bit! Enjoy, cheers! ;)

Mighty Illustrations of Thor

Ok, the geek alert has sounded, so I better shut up and let you guys check these awesome illustrations. I recommend you to visit each artist's page! Pretty cool stuff there!

Creative and Stylish Artworks from Monfa

Monfa, was born Miguel Cabrera 28 years ago in Costa Rica. After some experiments drawing through walls and notebooks, he decided to make a living out of illustration, so he studied Fine Arts and became an editorial illustrator. Currently working on many personal projects, he splits his time between his job as an Art Director for a prestigious mexican editorial company, freelancing, art collaborations and showcasing his artwork on his personal website, which by the way you should visit! Monfa's illustrations are pretty stylish, creative and several times humorous. I really liked his work and style. The compositions, colors and the interesting caricatural tone of some artworks really got my attention. "In summary: 28 years old with a pencil in one hand and a paper in the other." Monfa I hope you you enjoy the images! :) Paper Cut by Monfa

Fun Cartoon Illustrations by Juan Molinet

Juan is an illustrator, graphic designer, and art director based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I keep coming across his work everywhere. First I stumbled across an illustration of his on ffffound a week or two ago, then last night I stumbled across his portfolio on behance. I am in love with his style! I gave in and decided to share some of his fun pieces with you today! Juan's illustrations are colorful and his use of texture is really nice. Most of all though, I think the one thing that pleases me the most about his work is its playfulness. Each little monster that he creates is as cute and cuddly as the next! Don't forget to give his flickr and behance a peek to see what else he's getting up to! And let me know what you think via twitter or facebook :)

Super Cool Star Wars Illustrations

We often get to see some cool Star Wars references. Memorabilia, parody videos, and many many other things... we even had a full article about the Star Wars Culture one year ago. One way that people often find to celebrate these fantastic movies, is by illustrating it! Whether commissioned or not, there are some fantastic illustrations on the matter, and I just had to share a few with you. From Adam Hughes to new artists, these are some great images that really illustrate the Star Wars universe, really cool! Anyways, I hope you guys enjoy my selection... and may the force be with you. ;p

Super Stylish Masters of the Universe Illustrations

I find truly fantastic when an artist gets to think about something that no one else thought before. For example, take a 80's super classic cartoon such as The Masters of the Universe and add fashion itens in a cool way and BAM! You got yourself one awesome set of illustrations. Ok, talking is way easier than doing, and that's why I find these illustrations by Adrian Riemann pretty awesome. The guy found out a really clever way to redesign the characters. In his own words: 16 Redesigns of famous Masters of the Universe-characters! I imagined them somewhere in the indie/hipster/fashion-scene, as if they were doing a photoshooting for some magazine. I'm a fashion-nerd myself, so I dressed them up in things that really excist and that I like. Yes, 16. We're not featuring all of them here, so to check them all, you gotta visit Adrian's portfolio at Behance, which is really worth! The guy deserves cause these are fantastic and super stylish! I love it. I hope you guys do too! Cheers. ;) He-Man Skeletor Man-At-Arms Trap Jaw She-Ra Tri-Clops Modulok Stratos Teela Stratos
